There are many questions surrounding the Ebola outbreak of 2014. Here is what you should know...
We’ve been told that the ongoing Ebola crisis in West Africa has killed several thousand people in recent months. According to World Health Organization (WHO) numbers, the virus has claimed well over a thousand more lives (4,493) then the amount that are said to have perished in the attacks of September 11, 2001.
Currently, there are 8,997 suspected cases, with most being reported in the three worst-affected countries, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. The incubation period for the deadly Ebola virus is said to be anywhere from two to 21 days.
The virus has reportedly made its way to parts of Europe and the United States with new cases being announced every week now.
The CDC recently confirmed that a second healthcare worker from Dallas, 29 year-old nurse Amber Joy Vinson has been diagnosed with Ebola after treating Thomas Eric Duncan, the now well-known Liberian man who is said to have contracted the virus while assisting an infected pregnant woman in West Africa.
Reportedly Vinson had been traveling by plane on October 13th, after supposedly making wedding plans. She made her way from Cleveland to Dallas on Frontier Airlines flight 1142. The plane is said to have made 5 flights before being taken out of service. This has resulted in airline stocks taking a plunge as the fear of Ebola grows across the country.
It has also been announced that Vinson had a low-grade fever while traveling. Shockingly, it was revealed that Vinson was given the ‘green light’ by the CDC to travel by plane even though she had signs of being very ill. Although the CDC is trying to get into contact with other passengers from Vinson’s airplane, they still maintain that those onboard her flight were not at high risk of contracting Ebola.

Although we’ve been told that wild animals can be carriers of the Ebola virus, including Fruit bats, it is also been stated that certain strains of the virus have been merged to become weaponized creating a deadly bioagent.
There seems to be two types of media coverage going on with Ebola, one based in propagating a fear-based narrative surrounding Ebola and those not reporting enough of the critical details as this outbreak appears to be spreading. It’s important to consider that there are multiple overlapping narratives when discussing the current explosion of Ebola, as we could be looking at a natural outbreak – or an engineered one.
Last week here at 21WIRE, we linked to an article from Intellihub, which contained a Rockefeller Foundation white paper from May 2010 entitled, ‘Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development.’ Within the document, there was a section outlining a scenario shockingly similar to the current Ebola outbreak.

Painting a viral outbreak
While we could be on the verge of a very serious outbreak, we should consider what happened during the propagandized height of the Swine Flu ‘epidemic’ (H1N1) in 2009. The W.H.O declared the apparent Swine Flu outbreak was a level-6 pandemic after just 20 cases worldwide.
Investigative reporter Jon Rappaport recently reminded us that former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, had nearly broken the back of the CDC and big pharma with her Swine Flu bombshell in an article entitled, “Swine Flu Cases Overestimated?”:
“We [CBS News] asked all 50 states for their statistics on state lab-confirmed H1N1 [Swine Flu cases] prior to the halt of individual testing and counting in July. The results reveal a pattern that surprised a number of health care professionals we consulted.”
“The vast majority of cases were negative for H1N1 as well as seasonal flu, despite the fact that many states were specifically testing patients deemed to be most likely to have H1N1 flu, based on symptoms and risk factors, such as travel to Mexico.”
The CDC had been caught doctoring results to prove an epidemic, then they stopped counting, because as it turns out -there was no epidemic.
Incredibly, the CDC continued lie about the spreading of Swine Flu and later stated that 22 million had come down with H1N1. Fortunately, much of this turned out to be falsified data.

Over the last week it was also confirmed that 26-year old Nina Pham a nurse at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, has contracted Ebola after treating Thomas Eric Duncan.
Authorities have asserted that Nina Pham was wearing the proper protective gear when she treated Duncan, yet that there was an apparent ‘breach in protocol’ according to the CDC.
What was the breach in protocol that lead to the protected nurse being infected?
According to the National Nurses United, “there was no advanced preparedness on what to do with the patient. There was no protocol, there was no system. The nurses were asked to call the Infectious Disease Department. The Infectious Disease Department did not have clear policies to provide either.”
New reports from the AP, have stated that the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital staff did not where hazmat suits until September 30th, when it was confirmed that Duncan was infected with Ebola.
Is this what really happened or is the Ebola story being revised again?
Bright lights and big money shine on Ebola
In my first article about Ebola, I noted there was evidence of a collusion between big pharma, various aid organizations, the CDC and W.H.O over this current crisis. It was reported that USAID affiliate Samaritan’s Purse, was working in an infected Ebola hot zone, just as the pharmaceutical corporation known as MAPP Biopharmaceutical, was looking to use their clinically untested and unproven drug called ZMapp. The biopharmaceutical company then received an unprecedented boost from W.H.O when an ‘expert’ panel lifted a ban internationally in August, allowing the drug to be used globally – a move that has raised major health and ethical concerns.
We should make note that historically, there have been cases where drugs were developed to fight certain disorders have also mimicked an actual viral outbreak.
So far there have been a small number of cases that have been confirmed outside the Ebola hot zone in West Africa, most notably, Thomas Eric Duncan, who made travel plans to come to the United States, after purportedly rekindling a relationship with Louise Troh, after a 16 year absence.
It’s important to note that Duncan was not actually married to Troh, although he was supposedly engaged to her. Those close to Duncan have remained in quarantine after his diagnosis, even though none of them have shown any symptoms of having contracted Ebola. So far there have not been any reports about any of his fellow passengers coming down with Ebola.

According to the Associated Press Duncan’s age has not been established, adding more to the mystery of his life:
“Duncan died Wednesday, almost two weeks after he first sought help. He was 45, according to the records. Relatives said he was 42. The discrepancy could not be immediately resolved.”
There have been many questions surrounding Duncan’s ability to purchase the expensive Liberia-United States bound plane ticket, as some researchers have pointed to an email by an anonymous airline employee, allegedly from United Airlines, that supposedly provides purchaser information for the Liberian man’s ticket. I cannot speak to the validity of the following email obtained by Gotnews.com but if true, it would be shocking.
Take a look at the screen shot of the alleged airline email below:
Strangely, the Star Telegram reported that, “Henry Brunson of SafeWay Cargo, a FedEx affiliate — said Duncan left the country Sept. 19 without informing him or giving the customary one month’s notice.”
Who was Duncan really working for?
Although Duncan died on Wednesday, October 8th, he is listed as the first person to develop Ebola on United States soil, following the treatment of Dr. Kent Brantly of the Christian aid organization Samaritan’s Purse and Nancy Writebol of Serving in Mission (SIM), who were flown back from Liberia to the United States after allegedly contracting the deadly virus. I should mention that Brantly, the medical director for Samaritan Purse, who was the head of the Ebola Consolidated Case Management Center in Monrovia, had been in Liberia since October 2013.
There is also an American video journalist Ashoka Mukpo, who had spent time working in Liberia and was admitted for treatment at Nebraska Medical Center, which has been said to be the only medical center in the country equipped to deal with this kind of viral outbreak.
Experimental ‘Wonder Drugs’
Due to an apparent shortage of the antibody ZMapp, both Mukpo and Duncan had been given Brincidofovir, an experimental drug from the bio-pharmaceutical company Chimerix. This caused outrage among those closest to Duncan.
Skeptics charge that Duncan could have been aware of his condition upon leaving Liberia and might have been seeking medical attention from doctors in the United States, even though he was seemingly asymptomatic upon departing for his trip in early September.
Former United States Shadow Senator, Jesse Jackson (photo, left) a known political agitator, hasn’t wasted any time injecting his brand of inflammatory racial rhetoric following the death of Duncan. Jackson who has made a career out of fanning divisive language, added fuel to the ‘Ebola’ fire by proclaiming that Duncan had not received proper care because of his race.
This is where Ferguson meets Ebola in Dallas (that’s a topic for another article).
The media later released that Duncan had been initially sent home by Texas Health Presbyterian on September 26th, after receiving antibiotics. However,the hospital defended its level of care, which was in stark contrast to a recent Huffington Post article:
“His case exposed serious flaws in the emergency room intake process of a major hospital and alerted other medical centers across the country about the need to educate all staff about how to screen for Ebola. Both nurses and doctors who had initially assessed Duncan’s symptoms on Sept. 25 apparently had access to Duncan’s travel history through the hospital electronic health record system, but they sent him home anyway with antibiotics — a decision that may have potentially endangered his life and exposed scores of Dallas residents to Ebola symptoms.
But perhaps what’s more alarming is the way the hospital has released information about Duncan’s first contact with health care workers. In the very first press conference, a spokesman for Texas Health had nothing to say about Duncan’s gap in care or potential mistakes workers had made. Then the hospital admitted one nurse knew he had come from Liberia, but the information wasn’t properly disseminated.
Then they said that a flaw in the workflow of the hospital’s electronic health records system was to blame. Then it turned out both doctor and nurse did have access to his travel history, and that there was in fact no flaw with the hospital’s record system.
“For me, the most disappointing thing isn’t that the system didn’t work, but in the aftermath, instead of helping every other hospital in the country understand where their system failed and learn from it, they have thrown out a whole lot of distractions,” said Dr. Ashish Jha, a professor at Harvard University’s School of Public Health, in an interview with The New York Times.

In a perplexing news release that we mentioned before by International Business Times, Brussels Airlines was named by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with United Airlines, as the one of the connecting flight carriers in Duncan’s itinerary on his way to Dallas. However, Brussels Airlines initially had a very different story to tell:
“Concerning your question, Brussels Airlines has not been contacted by the US Centre of Disease Control about this and we don’t have more information related to this case as we are not even aware about the identity of the person. This person had a choice between several transport solutions and airlines. We note that in its official statement the Centre of Disease Control highlights that there is no risk that this person contaminated other passengers as he only developed illness symptoms days after he arrived in the US. For your information: as long as a person has not developed any symptoms, this person is not contagious.”
It was reported that Duncan flew from Liberia to Brussels on flight 1247 but Brussels authorities had at first declined to verify this information, apparently due to their own set of laws regarding the release of information, as reported by the Daily Mail and MailOnline:
“Wencke Lemmes, a spokesperson for Brussels Airlines, told MailOnline ‘We cannot confirm whether the person in question has been travelling with us or not. Belgian law actually prohibits us to communicate any name of a passenger to external parties nor can we confirm the presence of a person on board of one of our flights – only the authorities are allowed to do so.”
‘In addition, Brussels Airlines has at no time been asked by CDC to inform its guests or staff of its Monrovia flights about the presence of an Ebola patient. The security and safety of our guests and staff remains at all times our first priority and as such we keep monitoring the situation in the three countries hit by Ebola very closely and keep the measures taken in close cooperation with the authorities and medical experts in place.’
Why did Belgium authorities initially decide to hold back flight details concerning Duncan and why did the CDC not want to inform the public about the health risks associated with the Liberian’s flight path?
There was a strange narrative surrounding Duncan’s arrival to the United States, and its worth mentioning that the CDC had been informing the media about Duncan’s flight for United Airlines media team. Here’s what United Airlines stated about Duncan’s flight path, as well as the CDC’s level of involvement in the matter:
‘While the CDC states it is unnecessary for it or the airline to contact others who were on the patient’s flights, United is providing information about the flights United believes the patient took, based on information provided by the CDC.”
Why was the CDC providing flight itinerary information to the subsequent airline that Duncan was on?
Also, what was the purpose behind the CDC initially saying it was unnecessary to contact other passengers on board both United Airlines Flight 822 and 951, not to mention the mystery surrounding Brussels Airlines Flight 1247?
In August, it was revealed that the CDC had received alerts from hospitals in 27 states, as some patients arriving were said to be exhibiting symptoms of the Ebola virus. Nearly all of these cases were determined to be a ‘false alarm’ so what was the real reason the CDC was concerned about some 68 cases of Ebola, considering the threat in the United States at the time was very low?
Incredibly this past summer, neither the CDC, FAA or TSA, could answer what precautions American airlines should be taking for travelers during the rise of Ebola. Of course we now know that some major airports within the United States will be testing the body temperature of a passenger and the screening process is said to be more lengthy when someone is traveling back from areas ravaged with Ebola. Basic analysis of these safety procedures seem to be lacking common sense, as they don’t appear to be effective at protecting anyone.
Many have wondered why the United States government has continued to allow flights to pour in from West Africa. A fair question when you consider that other nations appear to be taking more aggressive steps during this ongoing outbreak.

Viral cover-up, of a cover-up
During the rise of the AIDS crisis in the late 80’s, we saw a similar style of reporting, which was also apparent in the Swine Flu H1N1 epidemic of 2009 and the Asian-based outbreaks of Avian Flu and SARS. While its important to sound the alarm bell to warn the public, one should be very careful with information gathering during a developing health pandemic.
While hot on the trail of Ebola, investigative researcher Jon Rappaport, made the following comments in preparation for a radio interview in 1988 for his book called “AIDS Inc., Scandal of the Century.” Here is what he refers to as a ‘false reality’ as fear paralyzed the public over HIV and its transmission:
“It turns out there is absolutely no reason to say that HIV causes what is called AIDS. Once
you subtract HIV from the official story, what are you left with?
“A number of people who present an array of illnesses and symptoms. But without HIV, the ‘glue’ that held them all together vanishes. So now you have sick people.
“You have them in Africa, in New York, San Francisco, Haiti, and other places. Yes, they are sick and they are dying. But that doesn’t make an epidemic, because the tiny virus that was supposed to be at the bottom of all this is missing from the equation.
“This tells you how to invent a fake epidemic. You take many sick and dying people, and you claim there is one germ that is causing all the trouble.
“You promote a few diagnostic tests that ‘will confirm the presence of the germ’ and you tell people they must be tested.
“But the tests don’t really confirm the presence of the germ. They’re deceptive and useless. Of course, the test will register positive in many cases.
“These positive people are said to be victims of the one germ that is at the root of the epidemic.”
Here’s a documentary on YouTube called Deconstructing The Myth Of AIDS, an analysis that points to a major cover-up in the world of medicine…
At the start of this current crisis, Doctors Without Borders were said to have dampened the threat of Ebola in Guinea. “The group closed a center in Telimele, where 75 percent of patients have recovered,” according to Bloomberg in July, as pointed out by Truth Sector News in September. The humanitarian group are said to have focused future efforts in Sierra Leone just prior to its Ebola outbreak.
Oddly, the scientific community remained silent on the apparent 75% recovery rate and you have to wonder why, given that would have been a crowning achievement in the world of science. The BBC followed in pure cooked-up fashion, when they published a story in August proclaiming the Guinea had remained “miraculously free of Ebola.”
This begs the question: has this current Ebola crisis been scripted in someway?
The push to develop new vaccines against the Ebola has proven to be big business, as large and small bio-pharmaceutical companies have readied themselves after W.H.O. recently lifted an international ban on experimental drug therapy for Ebola.
According to Genscript.com:
“With funding from the US DOD’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), Newlink Genetics Corp has licensed an Ebola vaccine candidate developed by researchers at the Public Health Agency of Canada and are poised to begin human clinical trials before the end of the month of August 2014.”
It appears Ebola research is partly funded by the Pentagon’s black budget. Additionally, some researchers have charged that the United States government’s role in nation building, has played a part in the Ebola West Africa outbreak, through facilities and supplies overseen by USAID:
“February 5, 2004 was a day of exceptional promise for the people of Kailahun in Sierra Leone. The United States Ambassador Peter R. Chaveas on that day handed over the newly rehabilitated Kailahun Government Hospital to H.E. President Ahmed Tejan Kabbah.”
“The U.S. Government, through USAID, funded the hospital’s rehabilitation and the U.S Departments of Defense and State provided supplies and equipment for the hospital.”
There has also been a push to utilize an open-source Ebola genome browser, to supposedly accelerate vaccine test results, as reported by Fierce Biotech Research:
“The University of California, Santa Cruz, has released a new, open-source Ebola genome browser with the aim of encouraging the sharing of information among scientists to get a drug or vaccine to those most affected by Ebola as well as those at risk of contracting the disease.
The Ebola virus browser aligns 5 strains of Ebola with two strains of the related Marburg virus, and within these strains, researchers have aligned 148 individual viral genomes, including 102 from the current West Africa outbreak.“
The article goes on to report how multiple companies are in the process of developing future vaccines just in time to battle the rise of Ebola:
“Several drug companies are working on Ebola therapies and vaccines, with a few having been fast-tracked by the FDA–including Tekmira’s RNA interference therapeutic and most recently, Chimerix‘s antiviral drug. Two vaccines are in Phase I clinical trials–GlaxoSmithKline’s ($GSK) vaccine, which it is working on with the U.S. National Institutes of Health, as well as one developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada in Winnipeg.
An investigational antibody therapy conceived by Mapp Biopharmaceutical has already been given to several patients so far, including two Americans. In addition, Johnson & Johnson ($JNJ) is working on a vaccine with partner Bavarian Nordic, while Sarepta Therapeutics ($SRPT) is developing a small interfering RNA-treatment and Biocryst Pharmaceuticals ($BCRX) is designing a small molecule against the virus.”
There is no doubt that this research directly corresponds with the new genetically modified Ebola vaccines being administered to healthy volunteers in the United States, UK, Gambia and Mali – in the race to fast-track a worldwide ‘Ebola vaccine’ according to a recent report by the Examiner.

Aerosolized droplets of Ebola
While the CDC hasn’t fully acknowledged evidence of Ebola spreading through the air via aerosolized droplets, according to the National Institutes of Health, there have been numerous primate studies that strongly point to that possibility:
“There is limited knowledge of the pathogenesis of human ebolavirus infections and no reported human cases acquired by the aerosol route.
“There is a threat of ebolavirus as an aerosolized biological weapon, and this study evaluated the pathogenesis of aerosol infection in 18 rhesus macaques. Important and unique findings include early infection of the respiratory lymphoid tissues, early fibrin deposition in the splenic white pulp, and perivasculitis and vasculitis in superficial dermal blood vessels of haired skin with rash. Initial infection occurred in the respiratory lymphoid tissues, fibroblastic reticular cells, dendritic cells, alveolar macrophages, and blood monocytes.”
“Virus spread to regional lymph nodes, where significant viral replication occurred. Virus secondarily infected many additional blood monocytes and spread from the respiratory tissues to multiple organs, including the liver and spleen.”
During the well documented ‘Ebola Reston’ incident of 1989-1990, there seemed to be evidence of that particular strain of Ebola transferred from one monkey to another through the air, even though both were housed in separate areas. This lead the Ebola research team to consider an airborne transmission. Here is a quote from the LA Times from Dr. C.J. Peters, who oversaw the Reston facility at the time:
“Dr. C.J. Peters, who battled a 1989 outbreak of the virus among research monkeys housed in Virginia and who later led the CDC’s most far-reaching study of Ebola’s transmissibility in humans, said he would not rule out the possibility that it spreads through the air in tight quarters.”
“We just don’t have the data to exclude it,” said Peters, who continues to research viral diseases at the University of Texas in Galveston.
The CDC has remained unconvinced of Ebola transmission through the air, citing that there isn’t enough research. It’s important to remind ourselves though that the CDC does in fact have a patent on Ebola (EboBun) and that they could have a different motivation during a widespread outbreak:
“Tom Skinner, a spokesman for the CDC in Atlanta, said health officials were basing their response to Ebola on what has been learned from battling the virus since its discovery in central Africa in 1976. The CDC remains confident, he said, that Ebola is transmitted principally by direct physical contact with an ill person or their bodily fluids.
Skinner also said the CDC is conducting ongoing lab analyses to assess whether the present strain of Ebola is mutating in ways that would require the government to change its policies on responding to it. The results so far have not provided cause for concern, he said.”
In 2012, Mapp Bio-pharmaceutical president Larry Zeitlin had some strange foreshadowing on the spread of Ebola:
“I think it’s unlikely that a large pharmaceutical company would get involved,” said Larry Zeitlin, president of Mapp Biopharmaceutical of San Diego. “There isn’t a huge customer base and big pharma is obviously interested in big profits. So these niche products which are important for biodefense are really driven by small companies.”
He added: “I think it’s unlikely you’ll see a vaccine that’s used in millions and millions of people to prevent the disease, that might only come about if the nature of the disease changed, if it became something spread through airborne contact more like the flu.”
New reports have emerged detailing the level at which Nina Pham, the nurse at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, was protected. According to the CDC, as reported by the Washington Post:
“They kept adding more protective equipment as the patient [Duncan] deteriorated. They had masks first, then face shields, then the positive-pressure respirator. They added a second pair of gloves,” said Pierre Rollin, a CDC epidemiologist.”
How long will it be before the CDC admits that Ebola has in some studies shown evidence of the virus traveling through the air?
Here is an Ebola analysis from Storm Clouds Gathering discussing a 2012 study that had shown evidence of the Ebola virus being transmitted by large droplets that can stay suspended in the air…
There are other more strange and controversial claims surrounding this recent Ebola outbreak, as is the case in the YouTube analysis by ImYourGhost…
Many researchers have pointed out that the Ebola outbreak of 2014 could in fact be a false flag operation. Some suggest that Ebola has opened the door for border destabilization in the United States, as big pharma and government agencies have seemingly colluded during this crisis as well.
Others have stated that the Ebola outbreak in West Africa has been created by design to gain access to precious natural resources such as diamonds, oil and gas. In early October it was announced that some 4,000 troops are to be sent to Ebola ravaged regions with only 4 hours of training in viral outbreak scenarios.
As Ebola hysteria continues to sweep across the United States like a viral version of ISIS, one wonders about the uncanny timing of various pharmaceutical companies, as they are already poised to produce antibodies – just in time for this apparent international crisis.
How much longer will the CDC, W.H.O and the United States government put up smokes screens, shielding the public from reality?
